The Royal Albert Hall closed its doors to the public last march 17, after the growing expansion of the pandemic COVID-19 in the United Kingdom. This April 9 will return to the activities but in a virtual way, as it announced a new programme of sessions to be intimate, from the house of the artists.
This initiative is announced to the media through a press release, in your web site and in social networks. The program of sessions is called Royal Albert Home and take you to the home of viewers in the shows of leading international musicians, broadcasting from their homes.
The first transmission will be Rufus Wainwright, singer-songwriter and composer, american-canadian, this 9 of April. later will come the shows of Baxter Dury, Peter Gregson and Toby Thompson. They are the first confirmed. You can consult the program in the web page of the enclosure and add a reminder of the transmission, or keep you aware of events posted on their page on Facebook.
Remember that artists such as Led Zeppelin, Robbie Williams, Florence and the Machine, Adele, Muse, The Killers, to mention but a few, have had the opportunity to perform at this iconic place.
The 150 years of Royal Albert Hall
The access to these broadcasts will be free, however, the Royal Albert Hall enabled the option “donation” in their official site, because next year he would be serving 150 years since its foundation, and for obvious reasons it is not generating the necessary income to sustain their staff, their different programs and the same building.
Those responsible for the place they expect to open again its doors next may 18, but that is yet to be seen. This is the first time that the venue is forced to close, after the Second World War.
